Each John Lewis Xmas ad from 2011 was tested on a sample audience of 300 people using Realeyes’ AI technology, which uses webcams to measure consumers’ attention levels and emotional engagement while watching.
Ad rankings are based on three scores:
EmotionAll® Score – A 1 to 10 performance score which compares videos’ emotional engagement across our entire database of thousands of over 10,000 previously-tested videos.
Attention Volume – The average volume of attention respondents paid to the content.
Attention Quality – The proportion of the video which respondents managed to keep continuously attentive for, on average.
These scores were then fed into an algorithm to determine the overall rankings. Realeyes has more than 15,000 ads in its database. The average score is 5.0. To find out about Realeyes’ technology, download the company’s white papers on attention and emotion.
